In 2000, Metromedia president John W. Kluge donated $60 million to support an academic center where various senior scholars and post-doctoral fellows might come together at the Library of Congress to make full use of their tremendous collections and to interact with members of Congress. In the intervening five years, the Center has been quite a success, and this site provides an overview of the work at the Center and a number of online resources, such as the archives of the Kissinger Lectures and other such events. The News and Events area contains these archives, which date back to 2001, and include webcasts of talks and lectures by such luminaries as Vaclav Havel and the proceedings of symposia such as "Statecraft and America's Position in the World." Aspiring scholars and independent researchers will definitely want to look over the fellowship and grant opportunities offered by the Kluge Center as well.
